Watch for the close up!

I've been playing around with our camera recently just to see what it can do. This has lead to lots of pictures of the dogs and some of the chilblains. 

What I really like doing, though, is taking close up pictures of things - or macro photography, as it's known in the industry. Although I'm not entirely sure what industry that is. Or even if it is known as that. 

I did have a bit of time to kill today before picking N up from school and so I thought I would have a wander and, given the recent snowfall, see if I could get some nice wintery type macro photos. My plan failed for two reasons:

1. There was very little of interest to photograph, and

2. It was bloody cold!

This means that, for the purposes of this post, I'm going to subject you to some close up pictures of watches. Anyone who knows me will know that I have a thing for watches and that means that taking pictures of my watches (espescially close-up, detailed pictures) is something that makes me strangely happy.

(showing off lots off scratches!)

 Numeral and logo detail from Longines Conquest

 Logo detail from Seiko SKX781 "Orange Monster"

 Movement detail from Christopher Ward C5 Malvern Aviator

I'll not bore you with any more although I can assure you that the pictures look more impressive when blown up to full size!
